2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Review

Perfect for a family of four.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier is a compact car manufactured by General Motors (GM). It is one of the best selling cars by GM in the North American automotive market. The Cavalier was launched in early 1981 as a replacement for the Monza, which was available as a three-door hatchback, two-door coupe, and three-door wagon. The first model year was available with a front-wheel drive and looked similar to the Pontiac Firebird.

The Range

Body Styles: convertible, coupe, sedan
Engines: 2.2-liter I-4, 2.4-liter I-4
Transmissions: three-speed automatic, four-speed automatic, five-speed manual
Models: Chevrolet Cavalier, Chevrolet Cavalier LS, Chevrolet Cavalier Z24

What's New

The 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier is still available in the form of a coupe, convertible, and sedan, but the lineup gets some small changes for this model year. On the outside, the car gets new body-colored rear and front fascias, new badging, restyled alloy wheels and wheel covers, and new headlight and taillight assemblies. On the inside, the instrument panel gets a new electronic trip-meter and odometer along with improved storage space. The center console has been revamped with the addition of three retractable cup holders. The 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier also sees some performance changes. The five-speed manual transaxle is changed to a newer and better one, and the car gets a smoother ABS and a Passlock II security system. All models of the car have air-conditioning as standard.

Exterior

The 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier is available as a convertible, coupe, and sedan. All three body styles have the new Chevrolet bowtie emblem up front on the grille as well as new wheel covers, taillight designs, and headlight designs. The car has a wheelbase of 104.1 inches, a width of 68.7 inches for the two-door bodies, and 67.9 inches for the four-door bodies. The height of the car is 53 inches for the coupe, 54.1 inches for the convertible, and 54.7 inches for the sedan.

Interior

The 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier’s new center console has five cup holders: three for the front occupants and two for the people at the back. The console also has slots for CDs and coins cassettes. The instrument panel, which has been rearranged, holds the stereo system above the climate controls, and the optional sound system comes with a cassette and CD player, as well as a Radio Data System or RDS. This new system interrupts playbacks to relay emergency traffic or weather bulletins. The 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier is as roomy as its competitors. The low front bucket seats offer more headroom and still allow shorter drivers to see over the dashboard without difficulty. The back seats are comfortable and spacious enough only for two adults.

Performance & Handling

The base model Cavalier is fitted with a 2.2-liter, four-cylinder engine that delivers 115 horsepower, while the Z24 coupe and convertibles get a dual-camshaft, 2.4-liter, straight-four engine that delivers 150 horsepower. The base 2.2-liter, straight-four engine offers just enough acceleration, but it lacks any spare power when paired with the automatic transmission. The 2.4-liter variant offers more power and speed and works well with the automatic transmission than most other dual-camshaft four-cylinder engines. The ride quality is better than that of the average subcompact car, although there is a loud thump when the car passes over most ruts and bumps. The Z24 model has a stiffer suspension and rides more harshly. The base model Cavalier is able to corner with average grip and a little body lean, but the handling of the Z24 is way better than that of the base model.

Safety

The 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier comes with anti-lock brakes as standard, which is great considering the fact that the expensive cars still offer them as an optional feature. The car also comes with the Passlock security system by GM.
